Timothy D. Blackburn, MBA, PE
Have you ever experienced something not working, but discovered long after start-up? Do you have an uneasy feeling that something might not be installed correctly, but donít know how to verify? Then try commissioning. Actually, Commissioning is nothing new. What good engineer would not confirm an installation works? But if commissioning is documented poorly, it is inadequate. If it is done improperly, it is inadequate. Projects routinely have problems. One part of the solution is to have a robust and documented Commissioning process (assuming the design is robust in the first place). However, we can go to far and judge success by the weight of the paper generated. How can Commissioning be implemented meaningfully in the real world? This course will attempt to answer this question. The Author has been a leader in the Pharmaceutical industry in the application of documented Commissioning to minimize the regulated paperwork required for Validation/Qualification. He shares his learned experience in this course in the practical application of commissioning, whether in a regulated industry or not. This course is to a general audience Ė see separate material for specific applications to the Pharmaceutical industry.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
